You are about to complete the online application for Minority, Women, Veteran, Service Disabled Veteran, and/or Persons with Disabilities Owned Business Enterprises (MBE/WBE/VBE/SDVBE/PDBE) certification under Cook County’s Business Diversity Program.

If your firm is a new MBE/WBE applicant, we offer a one-stop shop certification application process in collaboration with the City of Chicago. This combined effort by the County and City lessens the financial burden and streamlines the certification process by providing a "one-stop shop" for MBE/WBEs interested in participating in County and City procurement opportunities. That means if you are already certified with the City of Chicago, you do not need to seek certification with Cook County or if you are currently certified by both agencies, then you only need to maintain your MBE and/or WBE Certification status current with just one agency.

If you have any questions or need help while completing the application, click the Customer Support link at the bottom left-hand side of your application screen. It will take you directly to Customer Support for any technical questions. For program related questions, please contact the Office of Contract Compliance by phone at (312) 603-5502.

Note: You may already have an account due to working relationships with other agencies. Therefore, prior to creating a new account, it is always best to Lookup Account to ensure you are not currently in the system.

The Office of Contract Compliance is now green! All applications must be submitted electronically and we no longer accept paper applications.
